Kids that distroy their work

Hi everyone,

I have a question. I have recently had several kids work very diligently on
an art lesson in class, and then in the end scrible over a good work and
sometimes go so far as to crumple the work up and throw it away. What to
do? Also, do you let kids make mistakes and then go for another piece of
paper several times? I keep trying to get them to use their mistake
creatively, but they totally loose interest if they conceive something as a
mistake, and stop being creative, won't work anymore on anything. (This is
for K-5).

Thanks'
